Two wary hearts …
Janice Combes has two loves, bucking bulls and Dirk Knowlton. But Dirk only has eyes for a dazzling rodeo queen. How can Janice ever compete while mired ankle-deep in manure? Exchanging playful banter with Dirk is all Janice can expect—until the stormy night he knocks on her door dripping wet and needing a place to crash.
Dirk Knowlton is living the cowboy dream. Life should be good—roping, branding, backing broncs, riding bulls, but there's a void he can't seem to fill. After getting hung up by a bull, he wonders if this is really the life he wants. Restless and rebellious, he bolts…but there’s a certain cowgirl he can’t forget.
When a battle-scarred Dirk returns to his Montana ranch he's determined to hang on at any cost. Janice has come back home to lick her own wounds. When old dreams turn to dust, can two wary hearts take another chance on love?
I have not read the first book in this series, however, this book definitely drew me in from where we start in it. We see another family ranch in this one needing to be saved (I say this because it happens to be the plot of more than several cowboy novels). The details abound in this read. And it's fast paced reading once you turn a few pages as the author draws you into the world of Dirk and Janice.
Anyone who enjoys cowboys and second chance novels will love this. A must read.
My Rating: 5 of 5
